Domestic Imperfection: One Year Blogiversary Giveaway!

One Year Blogiversary Giveaway!


Today, ladies and gentlemen, is my one year blogiversary! 
I told my husband this and he totally didn't understand, he thinks I made it up. I had to set him straight and tell him that in blogland, a blogiversary is a real thing and needs to be recognized.
February 12th of last year I started my Domestic Imperfection with this post. I really had no hopes or aspirations, I just started it on a whim halfway expecting it to die because I would lose interest and/or nobody would read it. I'm happy to say this has not been the case! I love doing projects and sharing them with you guys. I love my little 'ol blog, it's my escape from wiping noses and cleaning up cheerios. It's my me time. 
When I first started my blog, I didn't tell anyone about it. I didn't know anyone that blogged so it seemed like a weird thing to do. I didn't even tell my husband until after my curb appeal post at the end of June. Domestic Imperfection was my little secret for the first four months. I actually feel like I'm cheating a little bit by saying that today is my blogiversary, since I was the only reader for the first third of it's life, but whatever. 

I'm so grateful and flattered that ya'll stick with me and read my ramblings. To show my appreciation I'm hosting my very first giveaway! Are you super curious to know what I'm giving away? Is it a Cameo? A Shabby Apple dress? Something from Cutting Edge Stencils? Nope, sorry to burst your bubble...this giveaway is sponsored by yours truly! And I made...pillows! Well, pillow covers. I'm not actually going to send you the pillow part. Aren't I generous? 
And since it's No Spend February, I used scrap fabric that I already had lying around. It just keeps getting better and better doesn't it?

So here is what I'm giving away...


Four sets of 16x16 pillow covers.
So yes there will be FOUR winners. I have no idea how many people will enter, so chances are you'll have some pretty good odds!
Here is a close up of each set...

Black and white hounds tooth I bought for who knows what and never used - 

 Grey and yellow swirlies (the yellow one is the pillow I made for my envelope pillow tutorial) - 

Green Cross Section "leftover" from a project I never even started - 

 Indoor/outdoor fabric leftover from my nursery chair


Here are the rules...

1. To enter, you must first be a follower (you can follow by GFC, Linky, E-mail or RSS)  since this is a       giveaway in appreciation of my readers and all. 

2.Leave me a comment telling me what your TWO favorite pillows are.  

3. For one extra entry, 'Like' Domestic Imperfection on Facebook. 

4. Please leave me a separate comment for each entry. I want to keep this simple, so it's a  max of two entries per person.

5. Giveaway remains open until 10pm (central time) on Saturday, February 18th. Winners will be announced Monday the 20th and be chosen via Random.org.

I think that's it! Good luck!
